Uniquely Designed

The builders of ships used to transport such commodities as crude oil, chemicals and bitumen around the world must design and construct vessels that reliably meet some of the strictest requirements for critical liquid-handling and transfer applications. Blackmer pumps are used onboard commercial marine vessels around the world. In the shipping industry, downtime can be devastating for suppliers who must meet demanding delivery schedules, with any delays costing precious time and money, along with the threat of loss of reputation. Blackmer sliding vane, centrifugal and screw pumps are uniquely designed to meet the rigorous demands of marine applications, at sea or in port.


Blackmer pumps are used onboard commercial marine vessels around the world. Today, our vane, screw, and centrifugal pumps are utilized in marine applications such as:

  • Cargo pumps for loading and unloading tankers
  • Stripping pumps
  • Bitumen pumps
  • Feeder and booster pumps
  • Lube oil pumps for the engine room
  • Hydraulic oil pumps
  • Fuel oil transfer pumps: marine gas oil (MGO), light gas oil (LGO), and heavy fuel oil (HFO)


Sliding Vane Pump - ML

Designed as an efficient and reliable options that displaces a constant volume of fluid without variances in pressure, sliding vane pumps are ideal for high-capacity transfer applications such as pumping oil and bitumen to ships pumping oil and bitumen to ships, and line stripping tanks, barges, and ships.

  • HXL –  High capacity pump used for large bulk transfer available in sizes from 6- to 10-in.
  • XL –  Ductile iron heavy duty pumps flexible enough to handle liquids of all viscosities
  • ML – Shock resistant, ductile irons pumps with replaceable liners and end discs
Centrifugal Pump - LD17

Designed for high volume, severe duty applications such as unloading barges or ships, as well as transferring liquids from terminal tanks to loading platform, these reliable and robustly designed pumps set the standard for seal integrity and extended bearing life.

Screw Pumps

Screw Pumps

Blackmer® S Series Screw Pumps are self-priming, double-ended positive displacement pumps that offer outstanding performance in the most demanding applications regardless of temperature, viscosity or pressure.

  • Twin Screw – Built with a compact design composed of two sets of opposed screws that engage during operation to form a sealed cavity with the surrounding pump casing, these pumps are ideal for the unique demands of ship unloading and product transfer to distant tank farms.
  • Triple Screw – A positive displacement rotary pump which includes a male drive spindle, two female secondary spindle and a sealed chamber moving at uniform speed, this pump is ideally suited for applications including shipbuilding and the transfer of marine fluids such as lube oil or diesel.
